    1. A cult-favorite Orolay parka to help them thrive through even the most frigid of winters. Designed with a sherpa-lined hoodie, deep pockets, and the perfect midi length to make sure their ~assets~ are covered, they'll often find themselves wondering how they survived the cold without it.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out was 9° and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a t-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." —Zhure

    Get it from Amazon for $107.99+ (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in five colors).

    Check out one BuzzFeeder's review of this coat.

    2. A 100% cotton flannel plaid shirt best accessorized with a fleece blanket, cozy socks, a mug of hot chocolate, and several cheesy holiday films being played on their television.


    Promising review: "This shirt fits great! There's no gaping between the buttons around the chest, which is great! I appreciate the fact that I can machine wash and dry this shirt, plus it's very warm and well made. A little on the pricey side for me, but definitely worth it! I suggest ordering a size up." —Valkyrie19

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS-2X and in 12 colors).

    3. Chunky suede sneakers that should really start negotiating for PTO now, considering they'll likely be worn every single day as soon as they're unwrapped. / Via @puma

    Get them from Puma for $90 (available in sizes 5.5-11).

    4. A velvet dress so luxe, it'll look like you just spent the entirety of several paychecks on this one designer item; but surprise! You didn't. This gorgeous number is way more affordable than your typical high-end purchase.

    Promising review: "I am RARELY able to buy something online two days before an event, throw it on, wear no shapers under it, and go. But. This. Dress. Is. Different. I love it so much! I wish I had more holiday parties to go to so I could own it in every color! I’m a solid 18, this hugged every curve, was flattering, and was nicely lined. I don't have an hourglass figure, but this made me feel like Jessica Rabbit." —sheeshbri

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 14-24 and in 15 colors).

    5. Matching sports bras and high-rise leggings available in 16 gorgeous colors and fits. For anyone who lives and breathes athleisure, I'm pretty sure the below outfits are definitive proof that soulmates exist. / Via @girlfriendcollective, / Via @girlfriend

    Get the bra for $38 and the leggings for $68 at Girlfriend ( both available in sizes XXS-6XL, 16 colors, and two leggings lengths).

    6. A fitted V-neck bodysuit they won't have to tuck in and out of their high-waisted denim because — let me repeat — it's a bodysuit! One that will stay in place.


    Get it from Amazon for $27 (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    7. Tried-and-true Hunter rain boots guaranteed to have them begging for rain *just* as an excuse to wear these adorable things out. If they're looking for something puddle-proof that won't leave their socks drenched in water by the time their commute is done, get them these. / Via @hunterboots

    Get them from Nordstrom for $112.50 (originally $150, available in sizes 5-11).

    8. A pair of Madewell curvy jeans specifically designed for hourglass figures sick and tired of having to wear a belt. Each pair is thoughtfully crafted with a longer rise, slightly more narrow waist, and a hint of extra room at the hip and thighs to highlight their assets — no more gaping waistbands or having to go up a size to get the perfect fit for their legs and booty.

    Madewell, AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "These are the best jeans I’ve ever owned in my 30 years on earth. I have very curvy legs, which is usually a problem because I have a pretty small waist. Well, these jeans feel like they were made for my body. My curves are accentuated in the best way and I've already bought two pairs. I’m obsessed." —Nrmlgurl

    Get them from Madewell for $49.99+ (available in sizes 23-37, petite, regular, and tall lengths, and nine colors/styles).

    Read one BuzzFeeder's review of the Madewell curvy jeans (#8).

    Promising review: "I had been searching for a denim dress for a long time

    and this one is perfect. Lightweight and comfortable! So happy with this dress." —Kelli

    Promising review: "I’ve had this purse for a couple months now and it has held up really well! I’ve gotten tons of compliments, and I really enjoy all the pockets and storage. You can’t go wrong for the price, and it really hasn’t shown any wear or tear whatsoever." —Whitney V.

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in ten colors).

    11. Splurge-worthy perforated sneakers made from quality Italian leather. Can't get them to Florence anytime soon? Eh, have them slip these gorgeous things on and take 'em for a walk around your neighborhood instead. It's almost the same thing. / Via @greats, / Via @greats

    Psst, this is a winner on BuzzFeed Reviews for best everyday sneakers!

    Get it from Amazon for $31.10+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine colors).

    Promising review: "I got the light blue wash, and this jacket is everything I hoped for. It's heavy enough to keep me warm, I can comfortably wear layers underneath it, and it has a vintage feel to it." —Sandra Gibbons

    Get it from Everlane for $88 (traditional retail for $185, available in sizes XXS-XL and in six colors).

    15. A sleeved wrap dress perfect for both work and play, which makes it fantastic versatile gift that everyone needs in their closet. (It's also available in a heck ton of colors, in case the below bubble gum pink is not really their thing.)

    Promising review: "Fabulous dress. Elegant, sexy, stylish, hugged my curves, and I got tons of compliments on it. I wore it to work but I'd wear it anywhere!" —LL

    Get it from Amazon for $24.70+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 23 colors).

    16. High-top canvas sneakers for anyone who frequently rocks out to "Sk8er Boi" on Spotify. Do they actually own a skateboard? No — but these shoes will at least help them *think* that they have the kind of coordination necessary for one. / Via @vans

    Get them from Vans for $68 (available in sizes 5-17.5 and in 11 colors).

    17. Pull-on Levi Strauss jeans that look like their typical hunk of denim but are actually even more comfortable than their favorite leggings. And no button digging into their belly button? Halle- and I cannot stress this enough -lujah.,

    Promising review: "I never write reviews, but these are easily the best jeans I have ever owned in my life and I had to share!!! They fit perfectly in every way to the point where I can't believe these aren't custom made for me. They are incredibly comfortable without sacrificing the look of real jeans and the tummy panel is FANTASTIC. On top of all of that, these are more comfortable than my leggings. I'm in love with these pants and will be purchasing the rest of the colors to replace every other pair of jeans I own." —Anonymous

    Get it from Verishop for $78 (available in sizes XS-L and in two colors).

    19. A belted coat complete with a removable tie to cinch at their waist for an immediate ~hourglass~ silhouette. Hate cold weather, love cold weather layering pieces that can mask the fact that I'm wearing pajamas underneath it.


    Get them from Amazon for $79 (available in sizes 2-16 and in four colors).

    20. An RFID-blocking Ridge wallet designed with a money clip and surprisingly slim silhouette considering it can house up to 12 cards. This genuinely good gift is something that they'll use on the daily and will make 'em think of you fondly whenever they go to pay for their morning coffee. / Via @ridegwallet

    Promising review: "Going from a bulky leather wallet to The Ridge aluminum wallet was one of the best purchases I’ve made. No more back pocket bulge. No more sitting lopsided. It’s great to be able to just put this in my front pocket and go and I barely even know it’s there. If you’re sick of the big leather folding wallets, BUY THIS BAD BOY." —Clayton Slaugenwhite

    Get it from Amazon for $75 (available in four colors).

    Good American

    Get them from Good American for $159 (available in sizes 4-24).

    23. A turtleneck sweater made from a blend of merino wool and alpaca that makes it both super soft and substantial. This easy-to-wear layer will soon become a staple in their weekly wardrobe, one that you may be tempted to steal every now and again.

    J. Crew

    Get it from J. Crew for $57 (originally $95, available in sizes XXS-3X and in 11 colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $27.27+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in four colors).

    25. An oversized faux shearling jacket so soft, they'll basically feel as if they're wearing a combination of their favorite blanket and most cuddly teddy bear. Comfortable + super on-trend = all they want this holiday season., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this jacket! I wasn't sure how the quality was going to turn out, but it's super soft and exactly what I wanted. I got a small and it fits in the oversized way that I wanted/expected. Plus, it's sooo warm!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and in 15 colors).

    Get it from Aurate for $130 (traditional retail for $338).

    27. A water-resistant Longchamp nylon tote so lightweight, it's hard to believe it's roomy enough to comfortably house your entire life. Seriously, it's *so* deceiving just how much this thing can fit.


    Promising review: "I've wanted this bag for years and finally decided to spend the money. It looks exactly as I imagined and is perfect. Love the color because it goes with everything. There is a ton of room to fit things, it is well-made, and I also like it for traveling since it zips at the top and you don't have to worry about anything falling out." —KAL23

    Get it from Nordstrom for $145 (available in three colors).

    28. Heeled booties complete with a chunky heel that are shockingly comfortable according to reviewers, meaning their feet won't be aching after .5 seconds of wear.


    Promising review: "I love these boots! The heel is very comfortable and the color is a deep burgundy/brown. The only con would be that there are no zippers so you have to slide the boots on with the boot straps." —SP

    Get them from Amazon for $55 (available in sizes 5-10).

    29. A bandage dress about to become the pride of their wardrobe. Lovely fishtail hem? Check. Halter straps to give the girls some extra support? Check. Available in several gorgeous colors? Check check check.

    Promising review: "To say that I LOVE this dress would be an understatement. This dress is everything. It's made from a super heavy bandage material and it fits like a glove. I did have to get the straps altered a bit (they were a little too long), but I still love this!" —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $39+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 11 colors).

    33. Wool sneakers so incredibly soft and cozy, you'll feel like you're walking on the FLUFFIEST cloud imaginable. These shoes also have a padded insole, a super lightweight sole, and the laces? They're made from 100% recyclable material. / Via @allbirds

    Get it from Daniel Wellington for $190 (originally $238).

    38. A pendant necklace designed with a brass compass pointing in the direction of your shopping cart. Will you *actually* give this as a gift? Of course! You just want to try it on first, wear it for a few months, make sure it's good enough to gift, etc.

I just got it in the mail so I don't know how it will wear, but I can't wait to wear this on the first cold day of fall!

This durable tote has a heck ton of spacious pockets to keep everything nice and neat, while padded straps make for a comfortable commute.

    Get it from Amazon for $53.99+ (available in 22 colors).

    41. A utility jumpsuit they'll find themselves wearing at least eight days a week (😉) because of how versatile it is. They'll be able to easily dress this up or down depending on the social function they *sigh* have to attend.


    Get it from Amazon for $80 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in two colors).

    42. A DKNY sherpa hoodie for the football fanatic of your friend group! Consider this a more stylish upgrade to the constant sports gear they're usually wearing.

    Promising review: "This jumpsuit is heaven on earth and I want to live in it forever. It's great quality, fits beautifully, is very comfortable, and is easy to take on and off. I also find it breathable which is important since I live in a humid climate." —haymorg16
